If you have children of school age and are considering relocating to the British Virgin Islands, don’t worry, you won’t have to sacrifice their education as the BVI school system is accessible and of a high standard. With a selection of BVI public schools and private schools in BVI, we are confident you’ll find somewhere your child will thrive.
There are no residential restrictions, so families relocating to the BVI can apply for admittance to the school that suits their needs.
Applications for placement in British Virgin Islands schools must be completed through the Department of Education. Applications are accepted between January and April for the start of the following school year in September and again from November through December for places in a private school for the beginning of the semester the following January.
Parents will need to submit the following supporting documents along with their application forms:
Parents may also be requested to have their children take a placement exam in order to determine the appropriate education level.
Parents new to the BVI who have very young children may want to network with other parents before deciding which preschool or day-care center to enrol in. An excellent way to meet other parents is by attending weekly playgroups.
